Week 8: vs Indianapolis Colts

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Ben Roethlisberger bounced back from a blah outing at Cleveland (21/42 for 228 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with two sacks taken for -7 yards) to post 23/33 for 265 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions with two sacks taken for -16 yards vs. Houston last week. Antonio Brown (13 for 9/90/0) and Le'Veon Bell (eight for 8/88/1) were his main receivers last week, with Martavis Bryant (five for 2/40/1) also bringing down a TD. Lance Moore (2/12/1 receiving) caught a TD from Brown (1/1 for three yards and a TD). Pittsburgh had fun beating the Texans last week. The Colts' pass D is ranked fifth in the NFL in net yards allowed per game (214.4), with eight passing scores balanced by six interceptions (tied-14h in the NFL) and 21 sacks (tied for third). The Steelers have allowed 20 sacks this season (29th in the NFL) - you can expect Roethlisberger to go down at least a few times during this game. Last week, Cincinnati was utterly dominated by the Colts in this phase of the game (18/38 for 103 net yards, with four sacks taken for -23 yards), while Ryan Fitzpatrick was sacked five times for -16 yards two weeks ago (15/23 for 196 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions thrown). Advantage, Indianapolis.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs JAX (4 / 3 / 46 / 0 rec)

After a great fantasy week in Week #4, Miller returned to Earth against the Jags; he caught 3 passes on 4 targets and picked up 46 yards. Miller's best play was a 27-yard overhead catch near the end of the 2nd quarter; he also caught a pass and was tackled at the 1-foot line, just missing his 2nd touchdown of the season.

2014 Week 6 vs CLE (4 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)

Heath Miller was not a major player in the Steelers' passing attack, garnering only 4 targets in a game where the Steelers played from behind for the entire game. His targets were exclusively short crossing patterns that yielded minor gains in situations where short yardage was necessary. For fantasy purposes, Miller is only a bye-week filler until his role in this offense is increased.

2014 Week 7 vs HOU (1 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)

Despite playing over 90% of the Steelers' offensive snaps, Miller was only targeted twice all game (one target was negated due to a defensive holding penalty). His lone statistical contribution was a short reception for 13 yards in the 2nd quarter.
